Paula Deen

Going to Pot

On QVC

6/23/2013 5:43 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0621_paula_deen_tmz_article_01
If you're lookin' for Paula Deen's pots and pans, you better jump fast, because it looks like her shelf-life on QVC is about to expire.

Deen -- who appears on the product-hawking network to pitch her cookware -- may lose her platform over the "n-word" revelations.

A rep for the network says they have "concerns [over] the unfortunate Paula Deen situation."  The rep adds, "Please know that QVC does not tolerate discriminatory behavior."

Now this is the weird part, which makes QVC sound -- how do you say in English -- as spineless as deep-fried octopus.  "We are closely monitoring these events and we are reviewing our business relationship with Ms. Deen.  In the meantime, we have no immediate plans to have her appear on QVC."

Translation -- They're waiting to see which way the wind blows.

The treatment she is receiving is wrong. She is truly being discriminated against. I'm not a fan of hers, but I know wrong when I see it! It's okay for blacks to call whites whatever they want, and it's okay with the world! Whites are the ones being discriminated against, white males particularly! Her constitutional rights of FREEDOM OF SPEECH are being violated!

the same people blasting her.use that same word freely.but they have to in public pretend like they think it is bad.just like the actors in hollywood.behind closed doors they talk about how being gay is nasty and use the word ***got.but in public they support being gay and talk down on people who use that word.its like the athiests.they whine and say christians shove their religion on them.meanwhile they are forever shoving their veiws on everyone.

Can you all just read the entire deposition and lawsuit? She is not getting fired for her use of the N word alone. She is getting fired because she has segregated bathrooms in her restaurant, blacks work in the back whilst whites work in the front. She wanted a plantation styled wedding for her brother were the black servants would be "dressed in white shirts and black pants and tap dancing around like the good old Shirley Temple days." That is an actual quote from her by the way. I wish some of you would actually read the things she has said and done before defending her as it seems to me that none of you have a clue as to the real person you are defending.

The "N" word ending with the letter "A", has a different meaning than the one ending with the "ER". Major difference this day in time.

Is anyone else curious about TMZ's political correctness agenda? Racism against any race is wrong. Yet TMZ seems to think it's OK to allow racist comments against white people. I find it interesting that one can type the word "cracker" on here and it doesn't get censored. Yet if one types "******," it get's censored. BTW, I typed n*gger. Hypocrisy much? Truly disgusting.

"Please know that QVC does not tolerate discriminatory behavior."

But, it's OK to lynch someone over something that happened years ago that was a very minor thing to begin with. You Obama voters are complete shiat.

I admire and respect Paula Deen more than ever. She was honest unlike all you hypocrites, who use racial insults to describe white people, but will never admit it. Typical, s*** bagg liberals.

Outraged that this lady is being crucifid because she admitted to using the n word to her husband in reference to a black man that held a gun to her head during a bank robbery years ago.This man deserved to be called the n word but she just said it to her husband in th privacy of her home.This bnk robbery also caused her to have anxiety issues and agoraphobia for years.Now this horrible experience has came back to torment her again because we have the most stupid media who likes to ruin peoples lives.Oh excuse me! the Kardashian whom ar nothing but TRASH are exempt from the media scrutiny. What a cray world we live in. Paula Deen does not desere this treatment.
